      Tluxe Blog — We love

      Flash mobs go fashion

      What better way to kick off the week than with a fash-tastic flash mob under the shadow of the Eiffel Tower care of legendary queen of the wrap dress and Studio 54 icon, Diane von Furstenberg. Underlining the continuing trend for putting the fun back into fashion DVF herself headed up a dance routine of ladies in her fab print dresses getting down to the sounds of Chaka Khan‘s “I’m Every Woman”. Go girl.

      We love... Marc de Jong

        

      If you’re in Melbourne don’t miss artist Marc de Jong’s new exhibition Flock Work, which opened last week at Gould Galleries in South Yarra (until October 8). The science-meets-nature aesthetic of Marc’s show reminds us just a little of our own Basic Elements theme for the new Tluxe spring/summer 2012 collection.

      Marc’s lo-fi, pixelated depiction of volcanoes and climate change (pictured is his piece Lightening 3) reference recent current events, such as the Tokyo earth quakes, and aim to question our place in the universe. Serious, yes, but De Jong is not without a sense of humour. While his work hangs in major collections across the country, including The National Gallery of Australia, we love that his roots are based in illegal street art, where he spent many years tagging Melbourne’s laneways with anti-corporate takes on logos, turning Sportsgirl to Spoiltgirl, VISA into VICE, and bankcard to bankrupt. Smart, fun, and relevant. Sounds like our kind of man.

      Dance into the week... with Charlotte and Alber

      We’re loving the new dance-themed films coming our way right now. One of our favourite French film stars, the effortlessly cool Charlotte Gainsbourg, isn’t afraid to shake her groove thing in the music video for her debut single, Terrible Angels on what will be her fourth album, Stage Whisper out this November. 

      And while there’s been plenty of acclaim around the new film Pina by director Wim Wenders on the late dance choreographer Pina Bausch, the prize for the most entertaining cinematic moves this month arrives care of legendary Lanvin designer, Alber Elbaz.

      In what must be a first for a luxury brand, Elbaz and models including Karen Elson and Raquel Zimmermann, dispense of the usual seductive posing of designer campaigns for an informal, tongue-in-cheek dance routine. We hope it makes you smile as much as we did.
